The donkey is the Democratic Party’s logo. Is this truly America’s symbol of tolerance?

What is going on in Richmond, VA?

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The 2020 Virginia General Assembly session will reach “crossover day” on Tuesday. Bills must advance through one chamber or the other to avoid being killed for the session.

“Crossover” is the midpoint of the session, where bills passed by the House are considered by the Senate, and vice versa. After this congressional halftime, no new bills may be introduced.

“If you haven’t been able to get your bill through one of the houses at this point then let’s save it for next year,” said 8News Political Analyst Rich Meagher. (continued here (

So what bills are the Democrats likely to get out of the General Assembly? The article has links to lists of the bills that either the House or the Senate has passed, and there is a large number of them.  So what has caught people’s attention? Here are some of the news articles.

Let’s look at some specific bills.

  • HB177: Virginia Democrats advance bill to join National Popular Vote compact ( describes the bill. The problem here is that the votes of Virginians will become ineffectual in presidential elections. Instead of Virginians selecting their presidential electors, this bill will make the national vote determine who our electors will be, no matter how we vote. Does the Virginia General Assembly represent us or the rest of the country? Apparently, Democrats think they work for their party, not the citizens who elected them.
  • Virginia legislature ratifies Equal Rights Amendment ( There are all kinds of problems with the legality of this legislation. Check out this ERA Consequences Factsheet written by Robert G. “Delegate Bob” Marshall. What is most stupid about the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA)? Why wasn’t it passed within seven-year the deadline which long ago lapsed? Women realized the ERA would prevent our government from distinguishing between men and women, and they would be the big losers. Do Democrats care about the rights of women or not?
  •  SB 868 and HB 1663: Virginia lawmakers pass comprehensive LGBTQ protections ( We each discriminate because people are different. Sometimes we discriminate inappropriately, but more often, even when we raise the hackles of another person, we just don’t want to associate with behavior we consider abusive or inappropriate. Who decides what sort of discrimination — behavior — is appropriate? In a free society, as much as possible we each decide for ourselves. Government acts when someone criminally violates the rights of another person, but that is not what this bill is about. With this bill Democrats infringe upon our right to associate only with those people whose behavior we are willing to tolerate. Think about it. You can discriminate against someone just because they smell bad (eat lots of garlic), but you cannot keep your children away from someone you think is a bad role model? If that is not absurd, what is?
  • HB 19: House Democrats vote to remove Virginia’s photo ID requirement for voting ( effectively tells us that Democrats want people who are not citizens to vote.

Unfortunately, there are more bills like the one above. In addition, to what I have noted above, for example, Democrats want to raise our taxes, get rid of our right to work law, and make abortion of babies more commonplace. HEAR Project Virginia ( has a larger list of their awful legislation.


  1. Tom,

    HB177 is amazing that Virginians will surrender their State individual voting rights.

    If they are gamblers. the cards they have in their hands become worthless even if the cards are a winning hand in the game.

    Instead the pot goes to the holders of the most chips even if the cards in their hands are a losing hand in the game.

    In other words, the players of the game, and the outcome of the game, become “skewed.” (up)


    Regards and goodwill blogging.

      Democrat politicians work for their party, not the people who elect them. They think they are buying enough votes in the urban areas to win elections. So, to them the electoral college is just an impediment in their quest for power.
